  • Adelaide

Adelaide is a great place to study. You won’t find too many international students on every corner. It’s a smaller version of Sydney and Melbourne. It has a population of just 1.25 million. It’s easy to move around. Life in Adelaide is casual and relaxed. There is a great mix of cultures. Adelaide calls itself the City of Arts and Culture and hosts some of the best festivals in Australia. It’s close to the famous Barossa Valley where Australia’s finest wines are grown and produced. On nearby Kangaroo Island you can watch kangaroos playing on the beach and meet some koalas, wallabies, goannas, echidnas, seals and sea lions. Beautiful white sand beaches are about 20 minutes from the city centre. The climate is Mediterranean. It’s a great place to head off on your ‘outback adventure’ – into the red centre of Australia.
